Fevertree Drinks plc

 ("Fever-Tree", the "Group" or the "Company")

 

AGM Statement

Bill Ronald, Chairman of Fever-Tree, the world's leading supplier of premium carbonated mixers, will make the following statement at the Group's Annual General Meeting to be held at 11.30am today.

"2017 was another year of strong growth for Fever-Tree with all regions delivering impressive rate of sale growth and market share gains across both the on and off trade.

The first four months of 2018 has seen further positive progress, most notably in the UK where, as market leader, our brand strength, pioneering approach to flavours and formats, as well as our relationships with key customers and spirits partners means we are increasingly well positioned as the wider mixer category continues to evolve.

The transition to our wholly owned operations in the US is continuing to plan. We have made excellent progress, with the Fever-Tree US team now in place ahead of taking direct management of our distribution network and marketing effort on 1st June 2018.

As announced separately this morning, I am delighted to welcome Domenic De Lorenzo to the Board as a Non-Executive Director.  As a former FTSE 100 CFO with significant beverages experience I have no doubt he will further strengthen our Board's capabilities.

The Group's performance in the year to date has been encouraging and at this early stage in the year we are trading in line with market expectations for the full year ending 31 December 2018.

We look forward to reporting further on our progress at our interim results in July."
